FLEETWOOD MAC BACK

Again proving you can't keep a good band down, "Silver Springs," the lead single from Fleetwood Mac's long-awaited reunion album, was the most popular addition in three key radio formats, the group's label, Warner Bros., reported last week. According to Radio & Records, "Silver Springs" was the most added song on Adult Alternative, Hot Adult Contemporary and Adult Contemporary stations, with a hefty 51 adds in the latter category. "The Dance," which reunites the superstar line-up of Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Christine McVie, Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham, will be released August 19.

FLEETWOOD BACK

Fleetwood Mac is the latest classic rock band to take a trip down the comeback trail, says Reuters. Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, Christine and John McVie and Mick Fleetwood last week offered a select L.A. audience a preview of the U.S. tour they will kick off this fall. Friday's performance seemed to pick up from where the band left off in the late 1970s: drummer Fleetwood wore his customary breeches with golden ping-pong balls dangling between his legs, while Nicks, 49, twirled around the stage in multi-layered skirts and veils. Guests at the event included Cindy Crawford, Winona Ryder, Guns N' Roses drummer Matt Sorum, Courtney Love and her current companion, actor Edward Norton. Love called Fleetwood Mac's performance "very punk."

Thanks to Robert Beaton for the submission.
